|Ballots have dropped in King County for Prop 1, the Crisis Care Centers Levy. Recovery Café’s executive director, David Coffey, spoke with the Seattle Channel about the importance of investing in behavioral health services, and why Recovery Café has endorsed Prop 1. Watch the segment here. |
PROP 1 FUNDS WILL:
*Establish five crisis care centers, including a center dedicated to serving youth, distributed across our county with walk-in access and the potential for short-term stays to help people stabilize.
*Maintain and restore residential treatment beds, on a steady decline over the years as the demand for care increases.
*Grow the behavioral health workforce with career pathways and equitable wages through apprenticeship programming and access to higher education, credentialing, training, and wrap-around supports.
*Provide immediate services to meet our immediate needs using initial funds to create mobile or site-based crisis behavioral health services that can operate until the first crisis care centers open.
